M(h)aol embark on an Irish Tour this April, bringing the critically acclaimed album ‘Attachment Styles’ to Galway, Cork, Limerick and finally, Dublin.
Based in Dublin, Cork, Belfast, London and Bristol, the Irish intersectional feminist five piece have gained a reputation for their engaging and invigorating live shows.
Attachment Styles is a record about social connection, queerness and healing where the listener goes on a journey. When Róisín was writing the lyrics, she used the theory of attachment styles as an overarching theme which is a theory that looks at the impact our inter-familial relationships and society have on how we relate to one another.
Consisting of Róisín Nic Ghearailt (She/Her), Constance Keane (She/Her), Jamie Hyland (She/Her), Zoë Greenway (She/Her), and Sean Nolan (He/Him), M(h)aol apply a DIY ethos to all aspects of the band. Attachment Styles was released on TULLE, an independent women-led record label co-founded by Constance (drummer). The album was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Jamie Hyland (bassist) and all accompanying artwork and music videos were created by Zoë Greenway (bassist).
